The patterns for the Milan GT have finally arrived. Here is a picture of the shell pattern sitting outside the shop.

I have looked over the pattern and it is in quite good shape. There are a few spots that need touching up but nothing that will take very long.   What will take longer is closing off the openings in the plug.  If I am going to vaccum bag or infuse the parts I need an mould with no openings in it.  In the photo below you can see a jig being made of the cutouts in the floor.  I have also bonded on some drill bushings to pick up register points for mounting  the rear suspension, seat and wheel wells.

Here is a link to a bit of video of a Milan SL.  It is interesting that you can see the speedometer on the screen.   The rider does hit some quite fast speeds. 

I am now more determined to fit into the Milan SL than before.  

First I have to build the moulds for the Milan GT.  I will be going to pick up the shipment with the plugs and some parts next week.  It should be arriving at the freight terminal in Vancouver tomorow or the next day.  Then its just a matter of it clearing customs and I can go get it.
